What will you find besides the avant garde Versace and Sonia Rykiel boutiques at this eclectic neighbourhood? A church of course. And not just any church, the Saint Sulpice church is this mammoth and gorgeous building, only a little smaller than it’s more famous cousin Notre Dame, made famous in the novel Da Vinci Code. The church is known for its massive Cavaille-Coll organ that is perhaps the most impressive instrument of the romantic French symphonic era and is as big as its tradition of hosting talented organists. The organ has the most unparalleled acoustics and sounds that stir every string of your heart. Also, don’t forget to look out Eugene Delacroix murals, namely Jacob wrestling with the Angel.

Impressive structure, the former zero meridian goes just across the church floor as a distinctive bronze line. Very Dan Brownish :). We did not look for the famous corner stone though. Definitely worth visiting. Free entry
Beautiful church close to Luxembourg Gardens. It has a beautiful statue fountain out front, and statues on the second floor ( not sure how you get to those ) that are gorgeous. Amazing,in architecture.
Beautiful church in a less touristy area with lots of restaurants and shops. The church itself is gorgeous with art work both inside and outside.
You can see the famous rose line in Dan Brown's Da Vinci code in this church. It's a very interesting church with lots of asymmetry in the design. It's easy to overlook this church in your busy itinerary. Don't miss it!
An ornate church- a little more understated. Than sacre Coeur and Notre Dame and nestled in the latin district. No line to get in.
